Dr Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar are the superheroes of the trailer for the Super Bowl 2022 halftime show, which takes place on February 13 at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles (California).
Released on January 20, 2022, this spectacular cinematic style trailer for “Straight Out Compton” was produced by filmmaker F.J. Created by Gary Gray and Grammy Award winning composer Adam Blackstone. Called “The Call,” it’s one of the top hits of our five rap legends. The trailer is inspired by their iconic music videos and highlights the importance these artists have had in hip-hop culture for the past twenty years.
Lasting 3 minutes and 43 seconds, in this trailer studio Eminem begins with a few stanzas from his hit “Rob Got” talking face to face with his ghost replacement ego Slim Shady.
Snoop Dogg, then a fan of “Car Wheeling”, appeared on the wheel of an American car with the sound of “The Next Episode”, one of his classics written by Dr. Trey. Dr. Tray’s “Family affair” performed by Mary Blizz is another hit.
The Bronx-born hip-hop artist can be seen in the middle of a make-up session for a photo shoot. Finally, Kendrick Lamar appears on screen in the middle of a home writing session, while his hit “Humble” sounds.
Each artist’s queue ends with a mysterious phone call that triggers their hasty departure. Dr. Trey invites them to join him in Los Angeles. To the sound of Tobago’s “California Love” sound, we watch them all together, at night, in front of the Sophie Stadium in Los Angeles where the Super Bowl 2022 takes place.
The 30-second spots of “The Call” will be broadcast throughout the NFL playoffs in the United States and shortly before the Super Bowl, the final match of the American Football Championship.
On February 13, 2022, this classic trailer offers only what awaits viewers halfway through the competition. Make no mistake about “setting fire” to this five-level hip-hop stadium that has won 43 Grammy Awards. A show on stage already promises to be memorable. Last year, a half-hour show hosted by talented Canadian artist The Weekend left the public starving.
